Arab Film Festival Stockholm 2021

Arab Film Festival Stockholm is finally back!

Between the 22th and the 25th of October, you are welcome to Cinema Zita for a handpicked selection of feature, documentary and short films, as well as encounters with international guests, school screenings and a festive inauguration mingle. All films screened will have Arabic dialogue and either English or Swedish subtitles.

Arab cinema is incredibly rich and versatile. The aim of Arab Film Festival Stockholm is to provide a platform for contemporary Arab quality cinema in the Stockholm region, as well as a space for new encounters and fresh perspectives. We believe in the power of cinema to convey both universal and particular aspects of the human experience.

Arab Film Festival Stockholm is organised by Malmö Arab Film Festival. MAFF was founded in 2011, and has since developed into the largest and the leading film festival focusing on Arab cinema in the Western world.

Arab Film Festival Stockholm is carried out with the generous support of the City of Stockholm, the Stockholm Region and the Swedish Film Institute.

In collaboration with Folkets Bio Zita, ABF Stockholm, Egyptiska Hem i Sverige, Orient House, Re:Orient, Kompis Sverige, Folkets Bio and ACIS.
